Abacha loot: PDP frustrated by lack of access to funds – APC

National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu stated this in a statement on Sunday night.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has clashed with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over the latter’s allegation that the Federal Government plans to loot the recovered $311 million repatriated funds from United States (U.S.) and the Island of Jersey.

APC said the PDP is frustrated by its lack of access to public funds.

In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, APC said PDP being a corrupt party “is saddened by a missed opportunity to share the money as they used to”.

“It is clear that the US, UK and other countries holding our looted funds and assets have now found a trusted government led by President Buhari to return stolen assets and it is our collective pride as a country to regain the trust of the international community.

“The funds being repatriated under the President Buhari government is an indictment on successive PDP administrations which many countries found too corrupt and with a renowned propensity to re-loot the stolen monies, hence they held on to much of the funds,” APC said.
